Next week a private contractor working on underground utilities will close all but one lane on 15th Avenue Northeast between Northeast 63rd and Northeast 65th streets. North- and southbound traffic will alternate with the assistance of traffic flaggers, and the sidewalk on the west side will be closed with a pedestrian detour to the east side of the street, also assisted by traffic flaggers. The crews plan to work from Monday March 11 to Friday March 15 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, and possibly into the following week, if needed. The roadway and sidewalk will be reopened outside of these hours.
Drivers should expect congestion and seek alternate routes if possible or allow extra time.
